In a complete turnaround from his statements earlier this year ago endorsing Special Counsel Robert Mueller as a man of impeccable integrity, Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich has come out in opposition to the former FBI Director. Gingrich’s new stance on Mueller and the DOJ come just after the announcement that Mr. Mueller and his team are convening a grand jury as part of their investigation into Donald Trump and his campaign’s ties to Russia.
Less than three months ago, Gingrich had this to say, when informed that Mueller has been chosen to lead the investigation:
Robert Mueller is superb choice to be special counsel. His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity. Media should now calm down
— Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) May 18, 2017
Apparently, Mr. Gingrich’s affection for Mueller only applied while he thought Mueller was going to clear Trump’s name.
Within hours of the grand jury announcement, Gingrich was on Sean Hannity’s show making hysterical claims against Mueller and the entire Justice Department. Gingrich stated,
The Mueller threat has probably been the most deadly. He has the power of the law, he has the ability to indict people, the ability to negotiate and let some people off if they’ll testify against other people. I regard the Mueller example as the deep state at its very worst and it worries me. It fits the whole case that we’ve seen the Justice Department at times being out of control.
What “case” of the Justice Department being out of control? Since when? If he means since Trump started overseeing it, then yes, we would have to agree. Every department is out of control due to Trump’s horrific lack of leadership. The entire administration is a proverbial circus act.
But the “Mueller threat”? Seriously? If Robert Mueller is, in Gingrich’s own words, a man with an “impeccable reputation for honesty and integrity,” the only “threat” he would pose would be if the Trump campaign actually colluded with Russia. Are you admitting to that, Mr. Gingrich?
Confirmation of guilt?
The fact that Fox had to trot out Newt Gingrich to slander Mueller and the Justice Department the minute a grand jury was announced leads us to believe that the Trump camp most certainly has something to hide. But what is most despicable about Gingrich’s statements is that it’s clear he and his fellow Trump cronies will stop at nothing—not even slandering and possibly weakening the United States’ Justice Department—to ensure Trump stays in power.
